Madagascar pepper, common pepper, black-pepper, white-pepper, พริกไทย
Its fruit is one of the most traded spices in the world. The fruits turn red when they are ripe and died to create the pepper we buy in shops. Black pepper is cooked and dried unripe fruit. If you pick the immature fruit when they are still green you will have green pepper. If you keep the seeds and ground them you will have white pepper.
Grown from cutting so this plant will fruit a lot quicker than a cutting.
Fresh pepper is used in Asian cooking giving a lovely flavour to curries.
